Micro Needle Roller Frequently Asked Questions
A Skin Care Revolution: Micro Needle Roller
The Dr Roller Derma Roller (Micro Needle Roller) is a fantastic tool which can naturally stimulate elastin and collagen production in the top layers of the skin without causing any damage. A Micro Needle Roller can be used by men or women and has multiple beneficial effects:
- Scar Reduction – including acne scar reduction
- Stretchmarks Reduction
- Anti Ageing Treatment
- Anti Wrinkle Treatment
- Cellulite Reduction
- Hair Loss Treatment / Hair Regrowth
- Hyper Pigmentation Treatment
QUESTION? What do wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and pitted skin have in common?
ANSWER: A lack of collagen! If your body could manufacture more collagen then you wouldn’t develop them. The use of a Micro Needle Roller gives nature a helping hand by triggering collagen production in your skin, which helps reverse or prevent their formation.
Even the celebrities of Hollywood are using cosmetic micro needling to give their skin a smooth and youthful glow. Probably the most high profile showbiz personalities said to have Micro Needle Roller treatment are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
What is the Dr Roller Derma Roller / CIT Roller?
The Dr Roller Derma Roller (or CIT Roller) is a precision engineered medical device, but with the simplicity necessary to use in the privacy of your home. It is based upon a simple hand held roller with 192 surgical steel microscopic needles which can part the pores of the surface layer of your skin without damaging it. The skin pores return to a normal state approximately 45 minutes to an hour later, but for that time, your skin is significantly better able to absorb and benefit from skin creams and lotions.
The photograph shown below shows a close-up view of the device. The micro needles are just 1 millimetre in length so it gives you a tickling sensation when the Dr Roller Derma Roller is used.

Micro needling of the skin is an increasingly popular cosmetic therapy, but the Dr Roller Derma Roller is an FDA approved application which is user-friendly enough that anyone can operate it at home. As a matter of fact, it has equivalent results to Laser Treatment, Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion, but it is much less invasive and carries just a small part of the cost.
So how does the Micro Needle Roller Work?
As you roll the Derma Roller over your skin, it makes tiny pin point punctures into the dermis – the majority of which are just temporarily opening your pores. This is perceived by the body as damage, which triggers the release of growth factors that, in turn, stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. Your skin is designed to react to any damage by initiating the healing process, but in general it will just repair as far as it has to to keep you healthy – which is completely different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently initiating this healing mechanism, you ask your body to carry on healing until the job is completed.
Your body generally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are fine, but with the gentle weekly reminder brought about by the Micro Needle Roller your body is coaxed into continuing the repair process until your body has also healed itself on a cosmetic level. This process of skin remodelling can keep working for months after each CIT Roller treatment, but noticeable changes may be experienced within a week or two! Your skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a little bit of effort, changes can be dramatic and fast.
Cosmetic micro-needling with the Micro Needle Roller can be conducted safely on all types of skin and all skin colours. Other treatments often have to avoid sensitive areas – for example the backs of the hands, around the eyes and the neck, but with a shorter needle size the Micro Needle Roller can be used on each of these zones. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area of the skin aren’t harmed, so there’s no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
So How do you use a Micro Needle Roller?
The Micro Needle Roller process is very straight forward and can be comfortably carried out in your own home. Visit our Micro Needle Roller Instructions page for additional details.
How soon does the Micro Needle Roller achieve results?
Naturally, the rate you will see noticeable results depends upon what you are treating along with how dramatically your body has to remodel the area in question. This process of skin remodelling can continue for many weeks after each Micro Needle Roller treatment, but noticeable improvements can be seen within 7 to 10 days! Your skin automatically renews itself every 40 days, so with a little perseverance changes can be dramatic and fast.
Does using a Micro Needle Roller hurt? or make you bleed?
There are two methods of Derma Rolling. One version requires the use of cream to numb the area, followed by more vigorous use of the Micro Needle Roller at most once each week. The second method, requires the use of the Micro Needle Roller with less pressure up to as much as 5 times per week. Using the roller lightly gives you a tingling sensation and is not painful – but your facial area is more sensitive to it than your body.
Neither method should draw blood. You perhaps may see a brief reddening of your skin for about an hour after each session and it can create a sensation similar to mild sunburn. We advocate the use of sunblock or sunscreen after microneedling. Visit our Micro Needle Roller Instructions page for further information.

Can the Dr Roller Micro Needle Roller really reduce stretch marks?
Stretch mark removal is just one of the countless benefits associated with the use of the Dr Roller Micro Needle Roller. Stretch marks happen when your skin is forced to stretch stretched rapidly. The surface layer of skin isn’t affected, but the dermis underneath becomes thinner and develops small tears. The capillaries that lie beneath the surface of the skin show through, which gives the stretch marks a reddish colour. After a while, when the blood vessels contract, the purplish colour fades to silvery white.
The most common triggers for stretch marks are pregnancy (between 75% and 90% of women develop stretch marks during pregnancy), adolescent growth spurts, quick muscle growth in weight lifters and weight loss or gain.
The process of removing stretch marks or the reduction of stretch marks happens as the Dr Roller Micro Needle Roller causes the production of new elastin and collagen fibres in the skin. The stretch marks gradually fill in, the skin grows thicker, tightens and elasticity is returned. The rate at which stretch marks reduction can be achieved is dependent upon the severity of the stretchmarks, but noticeable changes may be seen in as little as a week with dramatic results in a month or less.
Please see our Dermaroller Diary page to look at weekly photos of the remarkable results which can be achieved while using a Micro Needle Roller to remove stretch marks.

Are these the same as other Skin Rollers?
No. Not all skin rollers are the same. Some don’t carry the FDA certification that the Dr Roller Micro Needle Roller does. Other cheaper skin rollers are often for one use only and aren’t made from the same grade of surgical steel (so they can blunt or break), and most concerning is if they are gamma sterilized. The Micro Needle Roller is made to the highest specification so that it may be reused intensively for 12 to 24 weeks. It is manufactured / quality controlled in accordance with ISO/CE/FDA standards and gamma sterilised according to ISO 11137.
